Project DescriptionFROM JARMUND/VIGNÆS:
To get planning permission it was important to relate to the existing, typical, British seaside strip of houses. The roofscape, the bedroom floor, somehow plays with the formal presence of these buildings, and also brings into mind a romantic remembrance of holidays at bed- and breakfasts while traveling through the UK.
The ground floor is contrasting this by its lack of relationship to the architecture of the to floor. The living area and the terraces are set into the dunes in order to protect it from the strong winds, and opens equally in all directions to allow for wide views. The corners can be opened by sliding doors; this will emphasize the floating appearance of the top floor.
